Minimum Dance is a work in progress that develops around the search for a "minimal reality". In my research, sound is an entity, a memory that echoes in my body, creating a presence and a visual memory that emerge from the gestures present in the mechanism of dance. The sound the viewer hears is a neutral (geometric) solid added to the scene that replaces silence.
My research began with listening to almost random amounts of technology music in headphones as an experience vehicle to perceive me in a certain state. A mysteriously lived trance state, an attenuation or metamorphosis of my perceptual state to the point of penetration with euphoria on a cellular, epidermal and psychological level, from the text "Techno-trance" by Gianfranco Salvatore: "After a night of technotrance there remains the feeling of having celebrated an experience that is perhaps not only hedonistic[...] to use one's own person as a battery of energies that are capable of using one's own person as a battery of energies that are capable of...
Listening to technomusic formed by short melodic cells, obsessive repetition of modules, led me to manifest immediate rhythmic figures and create a specific choreography characterized by gestural severity, impersonality and emotional coldness. She lives between Italy and Berlin, a dancer with different experiences in the exploration of movement and research.
She trained and worked with several choreographers such as Anna Albertarelli (Gohatto and Vi-Kap), Simona Bertozzi, Nichola Laudati, Virgilio Sieni, Michele di Stefano (MK), Sonia Brunelli (Barokthegreat), founded the research group CAN I with choreographer Cristina Rizzo in 2010. A musician working in the field of electroacoustic music, Luciano Maggiore lives in Bologna. In recent years he has developed a strong interest in the mechanisms of sound diffusion, using loudspeakers and various analog and digital media (walkmans, CD players, dictation machines) as his first instruments.
His interest ranges between architectural and psychoacoustic values of sound and between dynamics and direction, with a strong emphasis on fixed sounds.
